. >> the sequestration has arrived. >> $85 billion in automatic government spending cuts. >> jon: dammit! [laughter] the first penalty of the sequester, my federal pen program. fake thing. [ laughter ] the sequester is here. the arbitrary budget cuts that were so onus congress would never allow the sequester to take effect. remember? >> it was ugly. it was designed to be ugly. >> onerous and undesirable and it remains our view it's no way to go. >> no way it can happen. >> automatic triggers are set up to be so painful we don't have to get to that point. >> it will not happen. >> jon: of course it will n .t. democrats and republicans would have to be not to goat to this ball punch it's like dennis rodman in north korea. [ laughter ] [cheers and applause] yeah, or the hottest show in the country being about duck call manufacturing. by the way, even though coming up with the most basic of spending cut and tax revenue frameworks was beyond the skill level of this congress there was another way to completely avoid the arbitrary cuts. >> we will be amongst the first on the floor to nullify that provisio
states government. >> really? >> yes ma'am. >> why? >> because they are trying to oppress us. the united states government is retiring. >> right, okay. >> so apparently in texas people like larry and lynn are tired of living under the jackboot of a democratically elected government hell bent on stripping them of freedoms they hold dear. >> one of the things that texas is loves, you can still talk -- allows, you can still talk on the cell phone and text while you are driving. >> really? >> yes, that's how much freedom texans want to keep. >> and if we can't even decide on things like that, they are huge tyrants. >> jon: what does the word tyrant mean to you as opposed to what it means to everybody else. >> tyrant like hitler or lincoln who murders the people for their own political gain. >> you think lincoln is tyrant? >> yes, ma'am. >> it's not something you normally hear. >> no, it's not but lincoln and hitler are very similar but most are not aware of it. >> hitler killed 600,000 jews. lincoln killed 600,000 americans. >> did lincoln give liberties to people as well? >> not that i know
the dimmer switch on habeus corpus. [laughter] now, the government's prosecutor said she could explain who was doing it but not in open session. ooo! oo! i think i know! can i solve the puzzle?! let's see ahuum. well, whoever's doing it, it's got the defense lawyers worried that someone "might be listening to private communications between them and their clients at the defense table. c'mon, i realize these military tribunals are a little unconventional-- in that they may not be covered under the geneva conventions-- but it's paranoid to imagine that the government is eavesdropping on you at the defense table. they're eavesdropping on your attorney-client meeting rooms. [laughter] hey, they say justice is blind, but they never said she's deaf. [laughter] [cheers and applause] okay, so the whole thing's being spied on and controlled by unseen forces. big deal. it's just like "survivor," except in this case, no one gets voted off the island. but folks, i can understand that for many this trial has lost its legitimacy. so i say we do the ethical thing and let the detainees go free. then hunt t
.d.p. it's two cents on the dollar. >> the federal government is highly inefficient. it could use a 5% or 10% cut. >> stephen: that is a courageous stance by rudy giuliani. that eliminate only 280,000 jobs, none of which are his. in retrospect, we should have seen this failgrg coming. it's just like the story from the bible and lo king salomon said if i cannot agree whose baby this is i'll cut it in half and one mom said, great, half a baby. probably less work anyway if you get the top half new york diapei changes. [laughter] but, foarkzage think the know why the sequester is not working because juz doesn't effect congress. the salaries of senators and representatives do not get cut. [audience oohs] it's like a lone shark saying if you don't pay up he's going to break your neighbor's legs. no skin off their nose. also, he is taking your neighbor's nose but that doesn't mean it was a bad idea. remember, the government that governs best is one that forces itself to either make tough zoirgses suffer unimagineibly horrible consequences. i believe it was jefferson who said that or jigsaw.

detroit and convert it into an independent commonwealth "founded on the principles of limited government, where residents would not pay any corporate or income taxes." finally, a consequence-free paradise for rich americans, other than the rest of america. [laughter] this haven for the wealthy is the realization of a dream from lockwood's self-published novel, also called "belle isle," in the tradition of other fictional tax shelters likes "narnia" and "where the wild things hide their assets."
